New Delhi: After Zomato executives in Howrah went on an indefinite strike against delivering beef and porks, the company on Sunday said it was looking to resolve the matter but it was impossible to factor vegetarian and non-vegetarian preferences into delivery logistics.

"In a country as diverse as India, it is impossible to ensure that vegetarian and non-vegetarian preferences are factored into delivery logistics. Delivery partners are unequivocally made to understand the practical nature of the job as they choose to enter the workforce," said spokesperson of Zomato in a statement.

"All our partners understand this fully. There is a small group of partners in Howrah, who have raised concerns. We are looking to resolve the issue as quickly as possible," added Zomato spokesperson.
